Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pichon Baron has more red than black fruit on the nose, quite showy with hints of crème de cassis and then later it calms down to reveal classic pencil lead aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth. This is quite assertive and grippy, although later vintages have evinced more precision and mineralité on the finish. Still, this is a fine if rather burly Pichon Baron. Tasted January 2016. Neal Martin

Tasting note


This 2006 vintage from the esteemed Pauillac appellation is a testament to the grandeur of Bordeaux's winemaking tradition. The wine presents a deep garnet hue, with a nose that seduces with its blend of spices and red fruits, including redcurrants and blackcurrants, complemented by a subtle woodiness and lightly toasted notes. The palate is greeted with a fleshy attack, revealing structured tannins that promise longevity. A mineral, salty finish with lively freshness ensures a lasting impression. Decanting for at least two hours is recommended to fully appreciate the wine's complexity.
